Am not sure how this recipe could have escaped being made & reviewed for such a long time, 'cause I'm tellin' you ~ THIS IS ONE VERY WONDERFUL TASTING TREAT! What with all the dates & raisins & cranberries, I could have eaten it all by myself (well, much of it, anyway!), but I managed somehow to share it with a neighbor couple this one time! I look forward to enjoying this great keeper of a recipe again & again ~ Thanks, much, for sharing it!
